Emergency Dental Care
Immediate care when you need it most
Pecan Park Dental is here to treat our patients in the event of a dental emergency — including chipped teeth, broken fillings, or other accidental injuries. Typically, immediate care is the best way to prevent further damage to an injured tooth. In most cases, we can see our patients right away if they are experiencing dental pain or discomfort.
What Is a Dental Emergency?
Most people don’t realize that dental problems can become more serious over time if they aren’t treated. That is why it’s important to know what constitutes a dental emergency. Basically, any situation that requires immediate treatment in order to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth is considered a dental emergency.
If the emergency situation is life-threatening, always call 911 immediately!

Is a Toothache a Dental Emergency?
Although a toothache should never be ignored, it is not often treated as a dental emergency. A toothache is usually a sign that there may be an underlying condition or issue that needs to be treated. However, sudden and severe tooth pain could be a sign of a more serious condition.
